Even for those who had never read or seen any Don Juan stories in their lives, the name Don Juan means the tempter, the irresistible type of man. But where does this charm come from? Nice appearance? Gentility? Money? Nice words? Disarming gall? Extravagance? The excitement of sin and viciousness?

DON CARLOS/EGMONT AT THE MALADYPE BASE 27TH DECEMBER 6 PM - DON CARLOS/EGMONT 28TH DECEMBER 6 PM – DON CARLOS 29TH DECEMBER 7 PM – EGMONT
F. Schiller: Don Carlos
Don Carlos, written by Schiller, is an excellent example of the pathetic-rhetoric thesis-drama genre. It’s story takes place at the power structure of the scheming and severe, highly regulated Spanish royal court. The plot is focusing on the faltering and anguishing prince, Don Carlos who is just about to be torn by the unfulfillness of his personal relationships. As for the aspect of the dramatic action, the most significant character is – the advocate of the European humanism – Marquis of Posa. He is the one who leads and merges the emotional and political motives into a unified system of inducements. However Carlos and Posa are going to fall, the youthful ambitions of their „golden dreams” will not be able to come true in the empire of necessity, the noble ideals of freedom and friendship triumphs over in the abstract layer formulated with lofty diction of this drama.
We are on the tour with Egg(s)Hell in India from the 3rd untill 9th of November 2012. This year Hungary will be one of the honorary guests of the Delhi International Arts Festival (DIAF). The trip is organized by Hungarofest Nonprofit Kft. and is sponsored by the Ministry of Public Administration and Justice.
Due to the austerity measures, coproductions and invitations to festivals in far countries, Maladype will spend a long time abroad. According to our season plan there will be four new performances, six new art and educational programs, and an Indian, an Iranian and an American trip.
On 15 September 2012, there will be a season opening party on the Maladype Base which will be connected with an overview of the company’s last decade. Through this event we’d like to show our adoration to Péter Molnár Gál who was an author, a critic, and also the joint author of the Maladype book. With our special guests we are going to talk through the most exciting stories that happened to us during these years.
MALADYPE as coproduction partner in the EU EACEA program enhancing the mobility of the young people sent to the Nomads of the Beauty project of the program two Hungarian students and their tutor from the Stage and Costume Design Department of the University of the Fine Arts in Budapest. The International Workshop of the Young Scenographers was held this summer in Split, Croatia and led by setting designer Alexandra Denic and director Ivica Buljan. You can read bellow the illustrated report:
COPRODUCTION PROJECT OF MINI TEATER AND MALADYPE THEATRE TRISTAN AND ISOLDE CHOSEN TO BE A PART OF THE COMPETITIVE PROGRAM OF THE 47 th BORSTNIK’S MEETING FESTIVAL IN 2012!
»The performance, full of little and intelligent solutions, aesthetic additions, rationally uncatchable ambivalence (set and costume design by Ana Savić Gecan) is a trip into the borderline author’s view of a love discourse of Tristan and Isolde, which legitimately isolates itself from all the linear procedures.
At the interpretation of the mythology of Tristan and Isolde the director radically shortens the story, cleans it of borderline situations and side characters, also of specific history references and traditions of presence.
The MALADYPE book, in Hungarian and English, can be obtained at the Maladype Base (Budapest VIII, Mikszáth tér 2, first floor) on all performance days, or may be ordered C.O.D. at email@example.com
Price 4,500 HUF

27th and 28th of January 2012 at 7 pm
Based on the inspiration of the texts by Bernard-Marie Koltès and J. D. Salinger
Director and text: Ivica Buljan
Actors: Senka Bulić and Marko Mandić
Costumes: Ana Savić-Gecan
Scenography: Slaven Tolj
Production: Mini Teater, Novo Kazalište Zagreb, Hotel Bulić Kazalište and ITD Zagreb / Slovenia / Croatia
Performance in English langue
Ivica Buljan is one of the most productive directors of post-dramatic theatre in Croatia, and he has directed and toured all over Europe. His most recent show Ma and Al is based on inspiration on texts by J.D. Salinger and Bernard-Maria Koltès in which the reader can recognise the parenting couple from the dysfunctional family Glass. The space is decorated with fragments of props, and the border between the real and fictitious experience become blurred as the audience is called upon and drawn into the playful hysteria of the actors that play characters from the novel and the play. Issues that are opened in the show are varied and from the everyday: family breakups, the death of a child, American democracy, the relationship between traditional and contemporary theatre, art, the Vietnam war, etc. Strong performances by Senka Bulić and Marko Mandić give us an in depth understanding of Salinger's and Koltès's texts.
Ma and Al is a brilliant play, thanks to extraordinary actors who amaze us with a brilliant physical theater, and the director who through the choice of theatrical actions and scenery, achieves the atmosphere of neurotic destructiveness that illustrates the relationship between main characters, or anti-characters to be more precise...(Zrinka Zorčec, Vijesnik)
